On Friday, May 13, 2016 Chestnut House Concerts will host our 50th show. In 2012 when we started, we held 7 house concerts and each year after the frequency increased.
People have asked us who our favorite musicians have been, and we cannot answer since there have simply been too many amazing artists that have walked through our doors. We’ve had primarily roots/bluegrass bands here, but some exceptions include Baskery, The Stacks (Tania Elizabeth / Andy Stack) , Roochie Toochie and the Ragtime Shepherd Kings, and our most recent show with Pierre Bensusan. Most bands are traveling through on tours but we’ve been lucky enough to have local musicians like Jake Lewis and the Clergy and The Stray Birds.
On Friday we reach show #50 by adding Kelley McRae to our list.. Her most recent album The Wayside debuts at No. 7 on the EuroAmericana charts, and below is a link to the video of Rare Bird from this album.
We hope you can attend the show on Friday and celebrate our 50th show with us. To RSVP contact Tim at email@example.com or send a text to 717-940-9311. The suggested donation is $15-20 and all money goes to the musicians. We have a potluck at 6 and music starts at 7. There will be some opening songs by Those Sensible Shoes from NYC.
